What will happen if we lose the war?
That is a question posed by a child to a good man while speaking to his son's class of 4th graders after accompanying them on a field trip. Dadmanly's response to Little Manly's young classmate is one which I wish I could have seated more than a few not-so-young listeners for. Without 'the scarey parts' these 'grown-ups' have grown to identify with nearly exclusively, they may have perhaps then seen what is really happening - to and for whom - sans car bomb and quagmire redux.
Having met him at the MilBlogger Conference in DC, I can report to you that Dadmanly is a master communicator, humble to a fault and a consumate gentleman. Finish reading his post and you will appreciate the truth in both of these short paragraphs.
